A video clip of “America” from the musical film version of “West Side Story” – music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.  The Broadway production of this musical was first performed in 1957, and the movie was released in 1961.  This musical about the Sharks and the Jets, rival gangs in NYC, is based upon the play “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare.
